My Students

My students live in a culturally diverse neighborhood in Florida. Some cultures represented at our school include Cuba, Puerto Rico, Honduras, and Mexico. More than 90 percent of students that attend our school qualify for free and reduced lunches. Many come from monolingual homes where both parents work to support their family. Some students take care of younger siblings after school while their parents work. For these students, education is their family's top priority and a way to break the cycle of poverty.

My Project

Can you imagine having to sit in a hard plastic chair all day? Now imagine that you're too tall or short for that chair. What if you prefer to rock while you work, or twist? Children are naturally built to move, especially while learning so why should they be confined to a chair all day?

My students need seating options like stools, wobble seats, yoga balls, and rolling chairs to help them concentrate, focus, and be more comfortable in our classroom.

These supplies will provide my students with the flexible seating options that will allow them to be more successful.

I want to provide my students with the differentiated environment that they need and deserve. This project will help me do just that!
